  1. Default Looking for some suggestions

    I am pretty good at determining what my aquascape should look like, but now I am thinking what fish I should do in my 125. I am considering some cory's, blood-fin tetras,neon tetras, a couple of Siamese algae eaters, definitely some bristlenose plecos, I really like the look of the Denison barbs but do not know much about them. For plants I am going to do a sporadic ground cover of dwarf baby tears, a BUNCH of Anubias varieties, downoi (if I can find it) and thinking about some star moss on some of the limbs. I am entertaining suggestions, my old 125 was awesome (came in #2 wordwide for best all time freshwater tank on Ratemyfishtank.com) and now I want to shoot for #1. Here is a pic of my tank as it stands now. It is a fresh restart and I am going through NTS so please forgive the cloudiness.

    Well I'm thinking you heading in a good direction. Looks good so far, If anything I would add a few more rocks.

    Bloodfins a great choices for big school in the way you've got your tank layed out. Neons are always a good choice, just get a big school.

    Denisons are great schoolers and bigger barbs but are gentle for their size.

    A few vail like plants and maybe a few plants that will grow on the wood. A heavy wooded tank is asking to have a large school of discus - they go great with cardinals.
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.

    The look of your tank to me is screaming cichlids

    I can imagine firemouths, blue acaras, convict. . . . Or maybe go for dwarfs, like Bolivians, Kribs, apistos

    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    Wow, that's a great hardscape you have there. I imagine lots of elegant, curling, cryptocoryne crispatula weaving through those branches. Maybe a few bushy hygrophilia to provide some highlights and density. A large school of harlequin rasbora or cardinals would really pop against the greenery.

    No more cichlids for me, I am not doing Africans anymore, south americans were a possibility but they get large and reek havoc on my plants

    I do not really care for Discus, they just never appealed to me, those cardinals are awesome though
